There is a lot of competition in the bottled water industry. Brands are vying for sales and trying to stand out from one another either by using a clever tagline or some type of interesting angle on marketing. Only some brands stand out based on what’s actually in the bottle and what it stands for. Waiakea Water is one of these distinct brands.
Waiakea Water is Hawaiian volcanic water. This brand collects its water from a spring at the base of the Mauna Loa Volcano. The water is naturally filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock. Along the way, it picks up trace minerals that are very healthy to drink.
Due to this natural process, the water is also alkaline. Waiakea Water pH is between 7.6 and 8.2. Pure water has a pH of 7 making it neutral. Healthy water is over 7 because it restores the body’s natural balance between acidic and alkaline.
Too many water bottles end up in landfills or, worse, out in the ocean. There is a deep need for a better water bottle in the world. The founder and chief executive officer of Waiakea Water, Ryan Emmons, is a leader in this area. His company has developed a fully degradable water bottle. It breaks down 97 percent faster than regular water bottles and so is much friendlier on the environment and aquatic life.
Beyond offering better water and a better water bottle, Waiakea Water is also a socially responsible brand. They created a partnership with the nonprofit Pump Aid to bring clean water to parts of Africa where that is very much lacking. For every liter of water this company sells, they help to create a full week’s worth of water in those areas. These are rural areas where Pump Aid helps them dig wells and install pumps to get at fresh, clean water under the surface.
Waiakea Water is a growing brand in the bottled water industry for these three reasons. They offer a healthy water to drink, delivered in environmentally friendly bottles, and help supply water to those who need it in parched areas of Africa.
Drinking water from a water bottle is considered a better alternative to tap water because of better taste, quality, accessibility, and safety. But people who purchase bottled water should be aware that not all bottled water is a good product. Ideally, bottled water comes directly from a spring somewhere. Many are really just tap water that has been processed through a filtering machine. Although it is not the best process for bottled water, it is acceptable as long as the company is clear that this is what they are doing.
Sadly, many do not. Many insinuate on their bottles that their tap contents actually come directly from a spring in some exotic location. This is especially problematic if the cost for this water is expensive because of this locality. These companies will not be able to prove their claim if customers press for a claim, and they should if there is any doubt. Waiakea Water is proud to say that they can back up their claim and encourage customers to pursue proof for such claims from them.
Waiakea Water is particularly good for combating the negative effects of heartburn. But that is only one of its health benefits. This bottled water has a natural alkaline pH of 8.2, providing your body with many benefits achieved with no other brand of bottled water in the world.
The Waiakea Water does more than just sell its quality products around the world. They are also constantly involved in various philanthropic initiatives around the world that seek to bring clean water sources to needy regions.
Waiakea Water’s CEO, Ryan Emmons, founded the company in 2012. It was while growing up in Hawaii that Emmons developed abiding love and appreciation for the environment and clean, healthy living. As a young man, he discovered a spring at the base of a volcano that was the best water he had ever had. He decided to make it his mission to bring this water to the world. Upon graduating college, he immediately founded Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water.
